Literacy Skills

The children are showing such growth in their understanding of letters, sounds, and writing. I love watching them make these connections. I asked the class, "Why is the alphabet important?" Maddy responded, "Letters are important because they make words and that is what we say."

This week we read more books about the alphabet including Curious George Learns the Alphabet, LMNO Peas, Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack Alphabet Adventure and Alphabet Rescue.

We are working on recognizing our sight words, sounding out the beginning, middle and end of words, and writing our own books. Please continue to read to your child every night.

The children were so excited about the gifts they made for you, they convinced me to let them take them home a week early.
